    why are we so interrested in planet mars, why do we once thoght, or some still think, there's mysterious things on it, why do some people think it had a civlisation?
    why why why why.? you know the rest, why do we feal that mars is mysterious and have many secrest, while all planets are mysterious and have many secrets.

    Mars was in close proximity (funding parameters), of scientific interest, Carl Sagan wanted it to happen, Ray Bradbury insisted, etc.

    If I ever gain the ability to travel through space using my own resources (meaning - no space agency or anything involved), I'm going to homestead on mars. I'd love to do it this year if I could. It would be ages before anybody else managed to get there. I could basically say the entire planet was mine and nobody could really do anything about it.

    I'd rather live on Ryttzso, a planet known for its beautiful water kingdoms. Most inhabitants live under the seas there because there is little land. They are a peaceful species having lost the need to fear each other or things other than them that live there. They also communicate with almost all other living things as well. Much better than Mars which doesn't even have a atmosphere.

    But very very thin, not one which could sustain human life.

    "The atmosphere of Mars is relatively thin, and the atmospheric pressure on the surface varies from around 30 pascals (0.0044 psi) on Olympus Mons's peak to over 1,155 pascals (0.1675 psi) in the depths of Hellas Planitia, with a mean surface level pressure of 600 pascals (0.087 psi), compared to Earth's sea level average of 101.3 kilopascals (14.69 psi), and a total mass of 25 teratonnes, compared to Earth's 5148 teratonnes. However, the scale height of the atmosphere is about 11 kilometers."

    In marathi history of astronomy, it had refreshing natural surroundings conducive to spiritual instruction and meditation. The residents of an ashram regularly performed spiritual and physical exercises, such as the various forms of Yoga. Other sacrifices and penances, such as Yajnas ( fire prayer ) were also performed. These places also served as Gurukuls or residential schools for children. Sometimes, the goal of a pilgrimage to the this place was not tranquility, but for instruction to gain knowledge of both intellectual and spiritual matters.

    even if mars had an atmosphere..there is no magnetic field to deflect all the radiation..

    Mars holds interest just because it is the most like Earth. This is something we've known for a long time. From the early days of the telescope we noted the similarities. It had polar caps, it rotated on its axis in about the same time as the Earth, and it's features changed with the seasons. All these thing made men believe that Mars could be a world much like our own.

    Add in Giovanni Schiaparelli's mistakenly observed "canals", which some felt were evidence of a civilization, and you have all the makings of a "place of mystery" that will hold human interest.

    Can we not create an artificial magnetic field by running silver wires or super conductor and solar power until we get our nuclear battery there? How much power we need to get same equivalent to Earth? Remember Mars is beyond Earth, so we may need less magnetic field for solar radiation.

    but once it had, and once had oceans and everything, and even today scientists think that it may be their frozen oceans under ground, also there's a moon that belongs to venus, it's like an ice ball, but with a hot core, that hot core makes the sea ball inside, under the surface, seas, and the surface, about -133°C, also that moon throw water vapor from time to time, huge water vapors, from some holes from time to time, like a fountain, or water spring, yo u know like here on earth there's hot water fountains, we used to think nothing lives their, but apperently there are microbes, and also some deep oceans creatures on earth live in hight tempeture.
    also here in earth, in chirnoby area, there are also microbes, living even in the toxic waters of the old chernoby power plant, and that water is caracterised with hight nuclear radination,s also life is back their, and some kind of horses adapted, and started to reproduce again, even that radiationts still their, so, life can exist anywhere.

    yeah that's why i love it too, but, i have a question, is their a chance that in past, had a civlisation? and, is their a chance, that, human once maybe, in the very ancient times, had technolgy, mauybe not we know, but, advanced? and could reach mars, maybe when it was alive? even if they didnt reach any outer planet, could they just ben very advanced, and then, just, extincted, i mean, for our toaday civlisation for example, of we all deseapeared with a magic wond, "PUFF!" all the prroofs of our today civlisation, would be ALL desepeared, in some 500 000 years, could their be a chance of ancient civlisation? and maybe a global desaster finshed their civlisation, maybe meterorites? our planet earth, is ennuf mysterious, and what about planet mars? and what makes it more, interresting for us, is the pyramid shapes on it... idk i feel that it was their something before, ancient developed civlisation, i don't mean taht travel to other nearby planets, i mean on earth;, not nececerly developed as we are, for us today our developement is technology, and that's what makes a turning point, i mean, i don't think technology is the only way to be developed, i mean, technolgy as we know, however, could it be true? could it be their other ancient civlisation opn earth before us? i mean, we existed millions of years ago in here.

    some life forms on earth, can live even in nuclear polluted water, you know the chernoby area? there are many microbes living even in the nuclear plant, and in the nuclear trashes and stuff, anyway, how do you know that mars was always like that, i mean, how do you know that planet mars, was always with no magnetic field to protect it?

    also there are many resources on mars to generate power, i mean, it may be their geothermal power next to the volcanow if it was so easy to go their and just, walk and build, also i think it can be their wind, also you know the electrified sand storms? maybe they can get power from it, also solar power, from the orbit, and even from the surface, water, exist, no problem.
    we can terraform it, but the only thing we need to do it, is not more developed technolgoy, well, yeah maybe, and maybe we can get the nececerry technolgoy in the next 50 years, and not human brains, and not distance, the only problem, is, MONEY MONEY MONEY, and time, because terraforming would take 1000 year to make it like earth, or we can just terraform the places that we need, liek to make an envirement, in a big greenhouse, that want be easy, also the fuels and the energy needed to reach all the rockets and maybe shuttles to the orbit of mars then to the ground, i mean, oil is running out, anyway that wan't be a problem because there are new kind of power source for the shuttles, or for the future, the space jets, you know about the space tourism and commercial, anyway, therre are the plzama powered rockets, nuclear, etc etc etc...

    50k above the surface of Venus the pressure is 1mb, the same as on Earth. The oxygen and nitrogen atmosphere is a floating gas in the atmosphere of Venus.

    No. Not as far as we know.
    There's nothing to indicate there is.

    Not ruins.
    Have you ever heard of erosion?
    What we have seen are natural (as far as we can tell) formations.
    Does this look like a city or a group of rocks?
